Biscuits for 2007

3 c flour (I used 2 c all-purpose and 1 c "white whole wheat" with excellent results)
1 T + 1 t baking powder
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
3/4 cup chilled unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 425°F. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in large bowl to blend. Using fingertips, rub 3/4 cup chilled butter into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and stir until evenly moistened. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness and cut out biscuits. Bake until biscuits are golden brown on top, about 15-18 minutes.

For a hungry horde on the first morning of the year, I doubled the recipe, added about 2 cups of shredded cheese, and cut out about 50 mini-biscuits (about 1 1/2 inch diameter). Yum.

Here's to many more delicious meals with friends and family in 2007!

I had several of these biscuits.... drool - hmmmm. I consider myself very lucky that I'm around and hungry when Melissa and Jeff are handing out food. :0)
